    I have no idea, I should look into that. I get abnormally pissed when I go to the market. I think I need to start doing some meditation or something. I've been way too on edge lately.

    But anyway, when we got married, we had groceries delivered to our villa and oh my god, it was the best thing EVER.

      I just don't really like to grocery shop, I do better when DH goes with me. Otherwise, I'm just in and out of there as quick as I can. I do however love Whole Foods!

        Jess,

        my parents live near a shop rite off of 38 and that place is a zoo - i can see why you hate it!
        alyssa - is that the world class one in wall? if so, there used to be a toy store there that i worked at...that place is HUGE...it's like my dream supermarket!

        i love to food shop. i used to have this thing about walking up and down every single aisle - i HAD to do it! during the week, i go at 6 or 7 pm, tho, when there are lots of people buying just a few items for dinner that night. i don't like going on sundays, but sometimes it's more convenient.
        i am an obnoxious shopper tho - if someone's cart is in my way, i just move it. i don't care if the person is standing right next to it. i say excuse me once, and then i push it. there is no excuse for ignoring someone who is trying to be polite.

              I think you just described the Shoprite I go to. Dont' ever go on senior citizen discount day. That's absolute hell. I always get stuck behing people who have no regard for the 3 other people waiting for them to move. I try to get my grocery shopping done as fast as possible, it is frustrating! I find if i go at like 9 at night, it's so much better. less crowded and no old people.

                The grocery store is the worst. I completely agree with you on EVERYTHING you've said. I think the only place that tries my patience more is Wal-Mart. I guess it's appropriate that they have become a grocery store as well.

                  HAHA you are not alone! I have totally had to change my shopping ways in Snow Bird Season here in S. Florida – just getting to the grocery store on Saturday morning is like a funeral procession sometimes.

                  Dh always goes with me because I get too annoyed otherwise and yes what is with people letting their kids run all over (anywhere). I realize I have no idea until I have my own toddler but seriously!
                  We also have decided that even though its annoying to go out of our way on work nights, we refuse to go to costco on the weekends anymore so we meet up and grab dinner and then go to costco when we have to go.

                    It is because of grocery shopping that I have put off getting my license for as long as I have (yes, I am one of those sad people who is too terrified to get her license)...I mean, if people can't even maneuver a shopping cart properly, how the heck can I expect them not to ram into me on the road with their cars?

                    aside from that though, it is really such an aggravating experience, which makes me even madder, since I actually enjoy the actual act of grocery shopping. But with all the aisle hogging, running children, and people who actually direct the bag boy on how they want their groceries packed (yes, they do exist, and I ALWAYS get stuck behind them), I do my best to go when everyone else is in bed...thank goodness for the 24hr grocery stores that are popping up everywhere!
